Everywhere I go, I meet people who seem to believe that it’s all over, that there is no hope, that freedom is forever doomed.
There is no question that the forces of globalism and socialism have pretty much had their way over the past few decades. And with very few exceptions, we don’t have a lot of allies in Washington, D.C., and in most State capitols. But that doesn’t mean that it’s over: not by a long shot.
Freedom didn’t have a majority in 1775 and 1776, either. I doubt that one could find any time in history when the proponents of liberty were ever in a majority.
However, there is one thing that Colonial America had that modern America doesn’t have: a patriot pulpit. The pulpits of Colonial America were ablaze with the fire of liberty. Colonial clergymen of every Christian denomination explained, enlightened, and expounded on the Natural Biblical principles of liberty from their pulpits continuously.
We lack the “moral force” of that patriot pulpit today. For the most part, America’s pastors today are shy, sheepish servants of the state. For the American people to once again muster the courage and conviction to reclaim their liberties requires a revival of the patriot pulpit. As long as Christian people stay seated in the padded pews of these passive pulpits, our nation will continue to plummet into the pit. But this is where the good news begins.
All over the country, tens of thousands of Christians are leaving these timid and cowardly ministers. Furthermore, there are thousands of Christians who are leaving these say-nothing churches and starting home churches with small groups of believers who also share their love of liberty.
Is there no hope? Is it all over?
Too many freedom lovers are still breathing so, it’s not over just yet.
